Panda Updates – Monday, February 12
The cubs have both exceeded the 90-pound mark. Ya Lun is still the heavier of the two at around 43 kilograms, with Xi Lun at around 42 kilograms. They are little bamboo-eating machines and they’ve begun coming inside with Lun Lun almost every time we need to freshen up Lun’s bamboo. Right now we have a species of bamboo called Sasa that the cubs are obsessed with. It is really long and skinny with just a few large leaves on top, which makes it the perfect bamboo for the cubs to work on their culming skills.
